12 tech companies with impressive benefits

In a 2018 Hired report, more than half (55%) of tech workers surveyed listed compensation and benefits as the biggest factor they consider when looking for a job or evaluating an offer. By offering health insurance, relocation assistance, tuition reimbursement, wellness stipends, paid parental leave, and other benefits, you can set your company apart from the crowd when trying to attract top talent.

Based on benefits provided, a 2018 survey by Comparably ranked Facebook number one in Best Companies for Perks & Benefits (large companies in the US), with Salesforce ranked second, followed by Google; Adobe (ranked 14th) and Zillow (ranked 18th) also made the list. Another 2018 survey by Comparably ranked Google (3rd), Salesforce (5th), Facebook (16th), and Adobe (23rd) as having the Happiest Employees in large companies in the US (HubSpot was 1st, followed by Netflix); this ranking is based on employee satisfaction with compensation, benefits, work environment, and employee value.

When employees are happier and more satisfied with the companies they work for, they are less likely to experience burnout, increasing the retention rates among companies. Benefits like backup child care, Employee Assistance Programs, and flexible scheduling (e.g., time off to care for loved ones, ability to work remotely) can help employees achieve a better work-life balance, which is also an important factor in employee retention.
